Thanks Dennis. Much better way to start the day than with the news!

"But this other one, the jammin' out of "The Other One" on the second disc is a thing that, uh, I didn't even believe it when I heard it. I still have trouble believing that we actually played that.

Weir: We, of course, didn't.
Lesh: But somebody did...
Lesh: - because we got it on tape."

And the music played the band. I think they lost a big part of this when the seductive newer drugs took over. Would you agree?

I agree 100%

Drugs fueled the music of the Grateful Dead. Unfortunately, the creativity and quality of the performances changed over the years with the libations...
